Sometimes referred to as HEINE.

Karl Heyne was born on the 21st of May 1866 in Jena, Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, Germany. At the end of the year 1894, together with his wife, two daughters and baby son, he came to the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek and soon settled in the Rustenburg area.

He started up as builder of houses, but went on to design and build more representative structures like the Lutheran Church in Kroondal, the N.G. Moederkerk and the Town Hall in Rustenburg.

He also undertook civil engineering work like the now defunct bridge over the Hex River at Kroondal.

Karl Heyne died in 1933 on the 8th of December in Rustenburg.
